Gallery: Beachgoers flock to Southwold to enjoy some September sun - but will it last?

JUST as the school summer holidays are drawing to a close, the sun has decided to come out at long last.

Suffolk enjoyed some fine, warm weather yesterday and experts are expecting it to continue into the weekend.

Forecasters said temperatures ranged between 21C and 23C yesterday - slightly over 70F.

Steve Western, from regional experts Weatherquest, said the conditions were caused by an area of high pressure.
